Are you considering advanced abdominal surgery in Sacramento, CA? Our surgeons and specialists explain the many benefits of robot-assisted treatments below.

What does laparoscopic surgery involve?

Laparoscopic surgeries allow surgeons to access specific areas within the abdomen without requiring large incisions. Patients may require abdominal surgery for simple and complex hernia repair, abdominal wall reconstruction, colon surgery, gallbladder surgery, or anti-reflux (GERD) surgery. In these procedures, surgeons use a system of instruments and cameras to operate through small areas with minimal trauma.

How is robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery different from traditional surgery?

Sierra Pacific Surgical performs robotic-assisted procedures so patients can enjoy the benefits of laparoscopic surgery with very few complications. Our surgeons are trained in the da VinciĀ® surgical system, which uses miniature instruments to create very small incisions and provides a magnified view of the internal structures. This helps our team access hard-to-reach areas for improved results. Robot-assisted procedures are generally performed at our accredited surgical facility in Sacramento.

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

The da Vinci surgical system provides many significant advantages to patients, including:

  • Greater precision: Robotic arms provide better precision than manual methods alone

  • Better access: Surgeons can access areas within the abdomen that would be more difficult or impossible with manual tools

  • Increased patient safety: The minimally invasive da Vinci system helps surgeons avoid damaging the surrounding tissue

  • Small scars: Small incisions mean faster healing and less scarring in the treatment area

  • Shorter recovery periods: Patients heal faster and return to regular activities and exercises sooner

  • Less post-operative discomfort: By creating smaller incisions, patients have reduced post-operative pain and discomfort

  • More positive surgical results: Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery helps surgeons achieve better outcomes overall

Are there any risks involved with the da Vinci system?

The da Vinci surgical system provides the benefits of laparoscopic surgery with greater precision, minimal scarring, and fewer post-operative side effects, like discomfort. However, it is important to understand that robotic surgery is not appropriate for all patients or procedures. Patients must undergo a consultation at Sierra Pacific Surgical before committing to the da Vinci system.
